DQS offers a range of Fuel Test Kits which accurately confirm the presence of micro-organisms in the diesel fuel, These organisms, which are typically called algae, ‘black death’, ‘diesel bug’,  etc. are primarily formed by bacteria, fungi and yeasts.

These organisms pose a significant risk to the wellbeing of the diesel engine and can lead to filter plugging, corrosion in fuel injector components and blockages in fuel pick-up pipes.
